Hope | Lyrics

Higher  (Acoustic)
(Hess / Lesperance)

I can feel the bombs are blowing up behind
Got my head above the water on the rise
And I feel alone although you walk beside

Still I fear what I'll find
If I hear you say the word goodbye

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Yeah I'm shedding all the skin that has disguised me
And I'm taking all the wrongs to make them right
Said my prayers and now I put it all behind me

Still I fear what I'll find
If I hear you say the word goodbye

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Into the light
Giving me energy
Into the light
You're there for me

When all is said and done
You're still the one
Taking me higher
When all is said and done
I still need your love
You're taking me higher

Watch Your Back
(Hess / Lesperance)

This is the world you've created
One of fear and denial
Look over your shoulder praying
As you wait for the knife

Getting burned by the fire you feed
Every wound every lie
Will bleed

Watch your back
Remembering that what you give
Is what you get
The karma bank is empty
But you're gonna pay
So watch your back for me

There's a war that you're waging
And it comes from inside
And you search for tomorrow
In the moment you hide

Getting burned by the fire you feed
Every wound every lie
Will bleed

Watch your back
Remembering that what you give
Is what you get
The karma bank is empty
But you're gonna pay
So watch your back for me

Time Bomb
(Hess / Lesperance)

Clear the way
A new leaf is turning over
A call for change
Know one ever hears

Picking up the pieces of you
I can't find you senses
Victim of your own deception
In the end you'll only lose

You're not fooling me
Not anyone
Pretending nothing's wrong

Go get your falling wings
My falling angel
I know you're a time bomb
Ready to explode
Everybody bleeds
Mind body and soul
I know you're a time bomb
Ready to explode

You fear the day
Make your move without detection
Turn away
You can't save yourself
Picking up the pieces of you
I can't find your senses
Victim of your own deception
In the end you'll only lose

You're not fooling me
Not anyone
Pretending nothing's wrong

Go get your falling wings
My falling angel
I know you're a time bomb
Ready to explode
Everybody bleeds
Mind body and soul
I know you're a time bomb
Ready to explode

Hope
(Hess / Lesperance)

Life in this hole can get me down
Never too late to turn it around

Separating all your sins you can't draw the line
Exercising all your demons out of your mind

Say that believe
Forever the sun will shine on your world
Say that you believe and I will never lose hope

Looking for signs up in the sky
When all along it's lived inside

Separating all your sins you can't draw the line
Exercising all your demons out of your mind

Say that believe
Forever the sun will shine on your world
Say that you believe and I will never lose hope

Days Are Numbered
(Hess / Lesperance)

Running out of faith in the midnight hour
We're all gonna hang from our ivory towers
I roll like a train going off the tracks
Living everyday like it's gonna be the last

Yeah life is what you make of it
No regrets
No turning back

If you want
You can live
Like there's no tomorrow
Cos ya know your days are numbered
All the end of it all what you see
Is that nothing's forever
Cos ya know your
Days are numbered

Digging through the days trying to forget a past
Crawling through the race that you know won't last
Counting up time using just one hand
The hourglass is running out of sand

Yeah life is what you make of it
No regrets
No turning back

If you want
You can live
Like there's no tomorrow
Cos ya know your days are numbered
All the end of it all what you see
Is that nothing's forever
Cos ya know your
Days are numbered

Run out of faith
Here in my final hour
I roll like a train
Now there's no turning back

Dark Times
(Hess / Lesperance)

Black rain is falling down on me
So hard that I can't see
In the darkness around me
I can't breath
Sense have taken leave
A hammer hitting me
Until my will has surrendered

Drowning in anarchy
Like a moth to the flame
Dragging me into these

Dark times
Good and evil waging war
In these dark times
Black rain will fall
On you and me

Black rain
Poured on the devil's seed
Angels have taken leave
In a cloud of hypocrisy
Disgrace, unholy human race
Is this the end of days
Or just an omen of our fate

Drowning in anarchy
Like a moth to the flame
Dragging me into these

Dark times
Good and evil waging war
In these dark times
Black rain will fall
On you and me

Beyond Repair
(Hess / Lesperance)

I was just a pawn again
There for your amusement

Pretending you love me
Pretending you need me

But your silence
Is saying everything
You're made of stone
And sinking beyond repair

Save it don't try to defend your ways
There's no argument

Pretending you love me
Pretending you need me

But your silence
Is saying everything
You're made of stone
And sinking beyond repair

Never Too Late
(Hess / Lesperance)

The glass half empty
The wrong side of another door
Pushed to the limit
Can't take the high road anymore

You know I'm sick of being lied too
Now give me something to hold on to

Freedom
We lost on the way
Is blown away
We're all searching for better days
It's never too late

Don't give me reasons
You crossed the line
I'll even the score
So every minute
You forget the battle
I'm winning the war

You know I'm sick of being lied too
Now give me something to hold on to

Freedom
We lost on the way
Is blown away
We're all searching for better days
It's never too late

Shooting Star
(Hess / Lesperance)

Defining me and you
Impossible to do

No clam seas
Like blowing leaves
We're searching for truth

Living everyday like there's no turning back
Like a shooting star I know
I'm crashing into the deep blue
Falling for you
You're all I wanna do

I fight for every move
While tied to dreams of youth

No clam seas
Like blowing leaves
We're searching for truth

Living everyday like there's no turning back
Like a shooting star I know
I'm crashing into the deep blue
Falling for you
You're all I wanna do

Calm Before The Storm
(Hess / Lesperance)

You will drop down to your knees
Bathe in the foul rain of defeat

Count up your blessings
Choke down your pills
Has God sent a message I can never tell

Is it the dark before the dawn
Or just the calm before the storm

Am I sentenced to repeat
Without a hope or destiny

Count up your blessings
Choke down your pills
Has God sent a message I can never tell

Is it the dark before the dawn
Or just the calm before the storm
If you believe nothing's wrong
It's just the calm before the storm

Nothing Without You
(Hess)

I will rise above it all for a minute
Love is just a four letter word I regret
You hold the key
The candlelight of us is a
Shadowed image
Now I'm in the dark and
The cold came with it
You hold the key

When I think through
What I can loose
I won't let it go

It;s hard to walk away
I'll sacrifice, I'll pay the price
Till my dying day
I'm strong enough to say
I'm nothing without you
I'm nothing
Without you

Holding onto dust am I loosing my grip
Diamonds turn to rust while the shine is dimming
Your ghost won't leave
I remember us in control for a minute
Now I'm in a world where the pieces won't fit
Your ghost won't leave

When I think through
What I can loose
I won't let it go

It;s hard to walk away
I'll sacrifice, I'll pay the price
Till my dying day
I'm strong enough to say
I'm nothing without you
I'm nothing
Without you

I'll carry on
Wearing my heart out on my sleeve
For all the world to see
I will stand tall
Showing I'll bend but I won't break
I'll rise up through it all

Stranger Than Love  (Acoustic version)
(Hess / Lesperance)

Any night that you're lonely
Can be the night
Your conscience
Gets a little too much
You're torn by your freedom
You're safe in chains
Is you life made of diamonds or dust

Would you surrender it all
I gotta know

Do you want my touch
Would it hurt too much
There's nothing stranger than love
Do you want (Do you want my touch)
Do you feel (Would it hurt too much)
There's nothing stranger than love
Do you want my love
In times of confusion
We never know
If the emotions we feel are enough
And then out of nowhere we remember
That there's nothing stranger than love

Would you surrender it all
I gotta know

Between the two of us
You know it's more than enough
